Out with the old, in with the new: The Brooklyn-Queens Kosciusko Bridge

3 New Bridges Rise in New York, With Looks That Could Stop Traffic.  (The New York Times, 4/27/2017)
In the last half-century, while New York was out of the bridge-building business, cable-stayed bridges were proliferating around the world. They were relatively easy and economical to build. And they almost couldn’t help but look beautiful, with their slender pylons and radiating cables. 
It’s as though a race of giant harp makers had been roaming the planet, threading it together with gossamer strands of steel.
